The sound quality on this version is unspeakably bad - like it was cut from low bitrate MP3s, employing some of the crudest noise reduction I've ever heard. You're far better off avoiding this cheap and nasty release and saving your pennies for a second hand Ashanti or Vulcan pressing, or - as I did - the Dub Store reissue. Other versions may also sound good, but these three (and the aforementioned CD) are the only ones I've heard.

This is an excellent Dub Store Records reissue of "Grounation" as far as I'm concerned, perfect even! The sound quality is great, the music and other content itself is timeless, haunting and enlightening and while the audio isn't always perfectly clear in the narration for example, it's as good as it'll ever be and a transcription is provided to follow along with. The packaging is an excellent and solid gatefold jacket with plenty of inserts, information, photos. All 3 LPs look and play great as well, no issues with the pressing at all. A very high quality and definitive reissue!

Had the Vulcan triple album many years ago but didn't listen to it too often - I simply missed the "swinging" reggae feeling then as this is more fusion or what is tagged "World Music" nowadays. Listen to this music again after so many years it's not only a trip into my musical past but no less one enlightening experience: Intense, masterfully played music and lyrics that allow somewhat like an insight in Jamaican and Rastafarian culture. Highly recommended from my POV.

Great pressing, far better quality than Retro Record's CD, the only issue is that first Narration is cut in two pieces

This record is so so good. For fans of reggae/dub or Sun Ra style spiritual jazz. This pressing also looks good, sounds good, and is nice and quiet, unlike a lot records being pressed these days. 5/5.

I'm not a big fan of Rastafari Religion (or religions in general...), but this album is just great, groovy and intense tunes!
Maybe somebody could help me: I have a copy made in Jamaica, grooves say DSR 2470 ND1002 DSR 2568, cover is only b/w. What version would that be? I never found an exact match. - Thx!

Yes , i own this LP set and the sound is .... lots of surface noise . But the music is great. You must know this style music to enjoy it .Its not your USUAL style of Reggae .This style is more like Ras Michael and the Sound of Negus .GREAT STUFF., Please enjoy.
